14/52

Start with the 52 in the rear, if you need more/less, drop the countershaft sprocket to 13 teeth for single track use.

Your not going to change the relationship of the gears, but if you lay out all the ratios as a percentage of RPM drop on each shift each gear further up the scale is closer then the one before. Thus when you gear down as the posts above are sugesting the gaps between gears get a bit closer. This is why most guys gear the EXC a bit lower in the woods, to reduce the 2-3 gap.
